LLNL selects Madhav Marathe for the first George A. Michael Distinguished Scholar Award

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory today announced that Prof. Madhav Marathe has been selected as the inaugural George A. Michael Distinguished Scholar.

The George A. Michael Distinguished Scholar is an annual award offering a noted scientist the opportunity to spend significant time carrying out research at the Institute for Scientific Computing Research at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL). The intent of the scholarship is to foster long-term collaboration on a topic of mutual interest.

Dr. Marathe is a professor of Computer Science and the Deputy Director of the Network Dynamics and Simulation Science Laboratory at Virginia Tech's Virginia Bioinformatics Institute at Virginia. Madhav is a recognized expert in interaction-based modeling and the simulation of large, complex biological, information, social, and technical systems. He will be in residence at ISCR from fall 2011 through summer 2012.

"In the pioneering spirit of George Michael, we have selected an innovator in the rapidly evolving field of network science," said Fred Streitz, director of ISCR. "The research this scholarship makes possible will advance scientific computing and the science it makes possible as well as help the Lab fulfill its missions for years to come. I can think of no better tribute to the visionary work of George Michael."

The award honors the memory of LLNL's George Michael, a brilliant theoretical physicist and computational scientist, who was among the early pioneers of what is today known as supercomputing and the founder of the annual Supercomputing Conference (SC).
